  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Huldah 
  weasel,  a  prophetess;  the  wife  of  Shallum.  She  was  consulted 
  regarding  the  "book  of  the  law"  discovered  by  the  high  priest 
  Hilkiah  (2  Kings  22:14-20;  2  Chr.  34:22-28).  She  resided  in  that 
  part  of  Jerusalem  called  the  Mishneh  (A.V.,  "the  college;"  R.V., 
  "the  second  quarter"),  supposed  by  some  to  be  the  suburb  between 
  the  inner  and  the  outer  wall,  the  second  or  lower  city,  Akra. 
  Miriam  (Ex.  15:20)  and  Deborah  (Judg.  4:4)  are  the  only  others 
  who  bear  the  title  of  "prophetess,"  for  the  word  in  Isa.  8:3 
  means  only  the  prophet's  wife.
